Thomas Johnson's Note on Poem 195

MANUSCRIPTS: The text above, written about 1860, is in packet 15 (H 82b). A variant of the second stanza (Bingham), in pencil and signed "Emily.," was sent to Samuel Bowles. The second line reads:

"Where this attendeth thee -"

The first line is without punctuation, and the last two words are italicized.

PUBLICATION: UP (1935), 27. The text derives from the packet copy, and is arranged as three six-line stanzas. The text to Bowles is in Letters (ed. 1894), 216; (ed. 1931), 204; also LL (1924), 254-255.
